1/2 Photos of Low Fat Dried Fruit Scones
This is a low fat version of scones that is very tasty. If you can't find the dried plum puree at your store, combine 8 oz pitted dried plums with 6 Tbsp water in blender, processing until smooth. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. 1 serving = 2 Starch, 1 Fruit
